Those Were The Days


Some songs really come alive when accompanied by an orchestra. Like Дорогой длинною performed here by Marie-Anne Izmajlov and by Sergey Lazarev. The song is the original Russian version of Those Were The Days. The Russian title translates to 'by the long road'. Same figurative meaning as 'those were the days' using the imagery of a long, memorable horse sled ride with a friend in a cold, snow-swept, winter night...those were the days.
